    I was impressed with how quickly we were seated and right at the window to overlook the river. Then the wait staff was very nice. Ryan our waiter was a real gentleman. The food was fantastic! The chef coming out at the end of dinner was unexpected and very pleasant; thank you to Damien for a very tasty dinner!

    A unique and lovely space in which to dine with a beautiful view of the St. Johns River and the Jacksonville skyline. The food and drinks are well prepared and the service spot on. It is way above average for a chain, but should not be confused with fine dinning.

    Our hopes were to be outside on their deck but 20 some knot winds wouldn't let us. If one lives In Jacksonville and wants a good dinner on the ocean, this is one of the few choices that exist and is the best. Our party of eight was well taken care of and all enjoyed their appetizers, dinner and desserts. It was my birthday so I choose The Reef having eaten there may times with hopes of better weather and an outside table. None of the other three coupes had been to The Reef before but they will be returning. It is a pretty drive along AIA.

    We haven't been to the Chart House in a long time. We took advantage of the "Eat Up Downtown" special. I ordered the Clam Chowder for appetizer and the Cod for entrée and we both the Mud Pie (the only choice) for dessert. My fiancé ordered the Gazpacho for appetizer and the Herb crusted salmon for her entrée. We enjoy sampling each other's choices and it was all fantastic. During the meal, the chef (Damien I think) came out and asked our opinion of the food. His doing this was easy, but very impressive to us. We only wish there was something we could have ordered instead of one of the Mud Pies. That was a lot of sugar at the end of the meal for both of us. I later wondered if we could have gotten another appetizer instead.

    Reservation was honored. Escorted quickly to our table. Happy Hour was going at the Bar area, many people enjoying the location. Very noisy in the Bar area, but noise was filtered out as we arrived at our Table. Décor was elegant, but the early 60's design is becoming faded. Glass windows face the River - beautiful views are blocked right now with construction of new Southbank. But beautiful. Windows are in need up replacement/updating. Copper accents also in need of cleaning/repair/brightening. Server was excellent, quick, and entertaining. Floor Manager and Head Chef stopped by to check on our meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here.

    My husband and I love to go to the Chart House to celebrate special occasions. This weekend we celebrated his birthday with a wonderful meal, great view and outstanding service. What I loved most about it was that I could enjoy an incredible tomato salad and one of their brand new appetizers without having to have an entree. Both were so delicious that I didn't feel I missed out on anything. I wish I had had room for dessert. Once again, the Chart House made our evening a night to remember.

    When my husband and I are looking for fine dining here in Jacksonville, this Chart House is always our choice. We have dined here several times over the years and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the service is top notch, the ambience is perfect and the view of the river and downtown Jacksonville is just wonderful. It is fine dining. It is expensive, but it is completely worth it. We will return again and again and highly recommend Chart House Restaurant.

    Charthouse is one of the best of the corporate owned restaurants where you consistently get a great meal at very nice locations. On this visit the food wasn't quite up to what I normal get at Charthouse and the service wasn't quite there either. Not terrible but not up to normal caliber either. I will dine there again as 95% of the time its a wonderful experience and hopefully be able to give a better review.

    This was a fun night at the Chart house. We asked for a window seat and got one, unfortunately there was a huge barge docked in front of the window. We enjoyed the meal and the service and the price. I am happy that the Chart House was participating in the Eat Up Downtown event. I will come again and again.

    The food was very good. This was one of my favorite restaurants, however with the economy it seems as if the prices have gone way up and the quantity of food has gone down. I was able to finish my entire meal which consisted of prime rib 10 oz, garlic mashed potatoes and an additional side order of asparagus(did not like the sauce on it). Based on the money we spent I would recommend III Forks over Chart House, sorry but I have a new favorite restaurant. Happy hour is better and the prices are easier on your purse.

    We were heading through Jacksonville at dinner time and realized there was a Chart House so decided to try it. This is the 4 th one in FL we have been to and we were not disappointed. Food and wait staff were excellent. We only hope they decide to renovate like the one in Melbourne so the view from the bar is as enticing as the food.

I arrived 20 minutes later due to my work schedule. My friends wasn't aware of the plan. This bartender kept harassing us to make a decision. Please keep in mind we order tons of drinks and food from the happy hour (bar).

    Let's start with the ambience...amazing architecture, but, it smelled like they've had active water leaks for years and the Men's bathroom smelled like my dog after a day outside. Definitely not what I expected from Chart House...we've dined at other Chart House locations so we have decent reference points. Next, service...our waitress was extremely nice and at no point did our drinks run dry. However, at Chart House prices, I expect service to be impeccable and it was no better than what my Mom consistently provided as a Denny's waitress. Finally, the food was only good. The appetizer (shrimp/brie/artichoke) and dessert (Hot Chocolate Lava Cake) were awesome but our meals were average at best. Definitely did not meet my expectations.

    We went to Chart House to celebrate an anniversary, and we were given a window seat so we got to enjoy the view of the river. We ordered the lobster and shrimp spring rolls and they were delicious. For our main dishes he got the Salmon Rockefeller and I got the Best of Shrimp and we both enjoyed our meals very much. Our server was wonderful, he was polite and witty and always on top of everything. We both had a very nice time.
